This forum is reserved for the discussion of a possible name change for the Dixie Zone.
Given the current environment in our country; it has been suggested that the name "Dixie" is out dated and inappropriate for these times.
A proposal has been put forth by one of the Dixie Zone LMSC's calling for a discussion about changing the Zone name.
This issue has been escalated to the USMS Diversity Committee for review.
Many of you have probably received the email from USMS President Peter Guadagni stating:

The question the Board and eventually LMSC Development Committee and the House of Delegates will consider is whether the name ‘Dixie’ creates a barrier and prevents USMS from being the type of inclusive community we seek to be.

We, as a zone should get in front of this discussion and be a part of it.
Please use this forum to indicate your preferences:
1) Should the name "Dixie Zone" be changed?
2) Possible alternative names the Zone?

Thank you, Ed. I support this change. I have been a USMS member over 30 years. I grew up in California but both of my parents are from the South and I have deep southern roots and family members who fought for the Confederacy.

I have been on the faculty as a rural sociologist at Auburn University since 1985. My professional work in the rural South has impressed upon me the importance of words and symbols that welcome or do not. For those of you who honor the sacrifices made by southerners during the Civil War, I respect and share your views. The point of the proposed name change is not inspired by a desire to forget the past but by a simple desire to extend a welcome to all who want to joint USMS. The word "Dixie" is associated with sentiments that are perceived as hostile by African Americans. The word Dixie carries the same weight as the Confederate battle flag, recently banned by NASCAR. Are we less open to encouraging diversity than NASCAR?

We live in a region where a high proportion of our population are African Afmerican (Alabama 25%, Louisiana and Mississippi 33%, Georgia 32%, South Carolina 27%, North Carolina 22%, Tennessee and Florida 17%). Our membership does not come anywhere near these figures. (I do wish USMS would collect data on race/ethnicity on membership.)

Yes, there are historical reasons why African Americans are underrepresented in our sport. The point is that we are trying to break away from this part of our history, to extend a welcoming hand and heart. The term Dixie simply carries a burden that does not help us be a more inclusive sport. For all who hold the word "Dixie" dear to your heart, do so. But please consider how it might be perceived by others as a symbol of an unpleasant past.

The zone includes Louisiana, Alabama, Tennessee, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Florida. So maybe something common to these states:

-- Hurricane Zone
-- Magnolia Zone

I could not find better words than Conner for this.
While I am far away from having Southern routes, I support a name change to ensure USMS is welcoming to and inclusive of everyone. This is an easy change to make.

A few ideas I had for a new name:
- hurricane zone (I see a trend here)
- sunshine zone
- citrus zone

I absolutely agree with most of what Conner Bailey said above; he stated it perfectly. I would like to add, however, that Connor wasn't entirely correct when he stated that, "The word "Dixie" is associated with sentiments that are perceived as hostile by African Americans." The word "Dixie" is also perceived as hostile by me, and I am white. Dixie is synonymous with slavery, and it is also synonymous with the Confederates who were traitors.

To be honest, I was appalled when I moved here and joined USMS, and learned that the name of our zone was called, "Dixie Zone." My first question to my husband was, "Why don't they call it the "Southeast Zone" instead? If I found (and still find) the word "Dixie" offensive, I can only imagine how it must feel for other members (ar potential members) of USMS who are ashamed of what the Confederates fought for in the Civil War.

Regarding options for a new name, in addition to "Southeast Zone," I really like Anna Lea's and Britta's ideas!

Thanks Ed,


When the topic was brought up last Sunday in our Georgia Masters meeting, I sat back and thought of my son Brandon. When we had our meeting and the name change was brought up, I decided to ask 3 people, whom I respect with what the they thought of when they Heard the word "Dixie". One was my oldest friend of now almost 50 years whom I grew up in Chicago and still lives there. The 2nd was a woman whom I teach with now. Almost 50, born, raised, educated in the Cobb County School system. I teach with her in my school. I asked them both to respond to one word..."Dixie" and what did that word bring to mind. They both had very similar comments. The Confederacy and the Confederate Flag.


The 3rd person I asked. Sadly, I wish I had done him better and spoken sooner. My son Brandon is 21 and he is a black man. I asked what he thought and he had a very short response...."call it the Southern Zone Dad". I can't add to that


The goal of our or any sport is to be inclusive, supportive, and non-judgmental. We strive to be an accepting group but when you have been subjected to a life of discrimination, hostility, or profiling...how can we ask Black Americans to be a part organization that accepts all when the name of our group has not always been that way. I echo Connor...a unpleasant symbol and term of the past and as Brandon's father...has to go

My suggestion of Southeast Zone fits in and is practical, but boring. I'm liking your Hurricane Zone or Britta's Sunshine Zone even more! The only thing about Hurricane Zone is that people might associate it with the Miami Hurricanes, which might not be appreciated by all the Dawg and Tigers fans!

How can you go wrong with Sunshine Zone? It's cheery and positive for everybody! :cheerleader:

I do like Southeast Zone as well. However, we would also have to change the name of the Southeastern LMSC then. In order to avoid that, I have stayed away from any name proposals that are already taken by LMSCs.

and GO CANES!

The below correspondence is from USMS President Peter Guadagni to current Dixie Zone Chair Ed Saltzman:

From: Peter Guadagni
Sent: Tuesday, June 16, 2020 1:38 AM
To: swimsalt@___
Subject: New name for Dixie Zone

Ed:

The Board voted to recommend the name of the Dixie Zone be changed during its regular Board meeting tonight. The plan is to approve the formal proposal for submission to the LMSC Development Committee at the summer Board meeting on July 11. The Board would like to give the Dixie Zone the opportunity to choose a new name.

Ultimately, the House of Delegates will determine whether the name should be changed. Even if the Zone would prefer the name not be changed, I think it would be a good idea for the Zone to select an alternative name. My preference is that the new name be geographical in nature to avoid confusion and contention. If the Zone selects a name being used by a current LMSC (i.e. Southeastern), it would be helpful if a new name could be suggested for the LMSC. You might want to follow the example used in the Northwest, where there is a Northwest Zone and an Inland Northwest LMSC. The choice, however, is yours.

It would be very helpful if you could get a recommendation for a new Zone name and possibly a new LMSC name to me by July 6. This would enable me to include it in our Board meeting materials.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks you for your service,
Peter Guadagni

To make things as easy as possible so only the zone name, web site, and other details have to be changed and a burden is not placed on LMSCs within the zone, I suggest that the names Southern and Southeastern NOT be used in order to save those LMSCs the burden of also making lots of changes.

And also the state of Mississippi.

To make the name change as painless as possible for everyone, I think we should not use SOUTHERN or SOUTHEASTERN so those two LMSCs in the zone don't have to make lots of changes too.

:applaud: Thank you, Anna Lea, for posting this! And, thank you to Peter and the USMS Board of Directors for doing the right thing. This is great news!

Britta, you bring up a good point, now that I have read Peter's letter. "Southeast" is probably too similar to "Southeastern" to meet the guidelines.

Since the deadline is July 6, our next Georgia Masters conference call is cutting it close for discussing any new name ideas. Perhaps an e-mail to the rest of the board should go out about Peter's letter?

I like the idea of renaming the Dixie Zone to something other than a direction. Hurricane Zone or Sunshine Zone sounds good to me.

First, my thoughts on this topic-The term 'Dixie' is a geographical one, referring to the area below the Mason-Dixon line, which was created in the mid-1760s, prior to the Revolutionary War. For those that want a name change for our zone because it reminds them of the Confederacy- then you should also want a name change for the Georgia, South Carolina, and North Carolina LMSCs, since they were all states of the Confederacy. Certainly, the Colony Zone should be renamed, since so many of those who fought in the Revolutionary War were slaveowners, including George Washington.That being said, I appreciate Conner Bailey's comments about this topic. I admit that it is a very personal one for me, because I am a descendant of Confederate soldiers, and I am proud of my heritage. My ancestors fought bravely in the War between the States. They were not fighting for slavery- the vast majority of soldiers were not slaveowners, just poor farmers. They were fighting for states' rights, and against the huge tariffs being imposed on exported crops by the federal government. My father was a battlefield re-enactor: my oldest brother and I spent most of our childhood accompanying him to the various battlefields throughout the South. I do take offense to comments that all Confederates were traitors- their land was invaded and plundered, and they were defending their land and their families. Those accusations are unwarranted and not right.I certainly consider our organization to be an inclusive one. I am sorry for the negative connotation that this term seems to have. Since it does appear that most are in favor of a name change, my proposal would be:Southern Atlantic or South Atlantic- sort of like Southern Pacific is for the West Coast?I like the other suggestions as well, but do think it should be a geographic term (much as I like Hurricane and Sunshine!).Respectfully,Lisa Watson Georgia LMSC

Louisiana and Mississippi are not on the Atlantic; they're on the Gulf. Tennessee isn't located on either one.

With the sheer geographic area encompassed in our overall area, no one designation appears perfect. How about the Southeatern Atlantic & Gulf Zone. Includes The Carolina's, Georgia, and Florida's Atlantic Geography. Tennessee being apart of the Southeast and Bama, The Pan Handle, Mississippi, and Louisiana being Gulf of Mexico States. Just my thoughts

To all the LMSC Leaders in the Dixie Zone
UPDATE
A lot of good Discussion Going On























There has been a lot of good discussion going on and several names have been thrown out there via Forum Post and emails.

Just to summarize where we are so everyone can stay current:



USMS BOD recommending a name change
Formal proposal to be approved at the July 11th BOD and submitted to the LMSC Development Committee.
Next it will go to the USMS HOD at the virtual convention for a vote.
We have till July 6th to submit our preference for a new Zone name.





Here are the names that have been suggested so far:

Southern Zone (Southern – Currently the LMSC name for LA & MS)

Alabama, Tennessee, and the Florida Panhandle)

Important things to keep in mind when picking a new name
Impact, Financial Ramifications, Recognition

If we choose to take one of the names currently being used by an LMSC, the financial impact of a name change on an LMSC is pretty far reaching. From new articles of incorporation/by-laws, to checks, new bank accounts, new website name, new domain name, etc.

The impact on the Zone is a lot less drastic – we don’t have a bank account; we therefore don’t have any checks to change. We are not incorporated; we don’t file any tax returns; we don’t have a line of clothing or T-shirts. We recently depleted our supply of Dixie Zone Top Ten patches (by the way – post name change your Dixie Zone Top Ten patches will become relics/collectibles, and therefore more valuable).
Our Zone championships have been awarded via a bid process and run by individual clubs or teams and therefore we have no stock pile of ribbons or awards with the Dixie Zone name on them. The basic impact on us would be the Domain Name change for our website.

It is probably best that we minimize costs, time, effort, etc. and not use an LMSC name for the zone.

That leaves us with looking for a name that captures the essence of who we are and reflects our geographic diversity. If we were a corporation we would spend a million dollars on a PR firm to help us develop a name. But, since we don’t have a million dollars (or any checks or budget to cover it) we are heavily dependent on the imagination and creativity of our members. Please spread the word amoungst your LMSC members -crowd source this issue and let’s get as many people involved as we can. I know we have creative people out there. I may have an old, valuable, collectible, Dixie Zone Top Ten patch we can give away as a prize for the winning name.

I agree with you Lisa, that the Colonies should also change their name for similar reasons everyone has stated. While some of the names are clever, this is simply naming a "zone" which is hardly ever used (sorry Ed). Hurricane zone if you think about it, is not a positive name especially the damage a hurricane can cause. I suggest we stick to a regional-type name and I think Southeast Atlantic & Gulf Zone covers our zone. My suggestion was Southeastern Zone, but since there's an LMSC with that name which is odd for the 3 areas it covers (more Gulf than Southeast), it will cost them to have to change the name. Thank you, Cheryl

Hi Ed....
I hadn't thought about the financial implications of using a name that an LMSC already has. I agree that if we do end up changing the zone name (and I am a supporter of that decision), we should avoid unnecessary costs if possible.

I also think if we can keep the name to a single word, or possibly hyphenate, that would be best....just from the perspective of creating communication materials..

I'd be ok with any of the options presented so far.......but, I also thought that jumping off of the
Southeastern Atlantic & Gulf Coast option.....
maybe another version of that might be:

Atlantic Gulf
or
Gulf Atlantic

We still have the Tennessee folks who aren't as strongly attached to either one of those bodies of water....but, maybe it can be added to the mix.

At some point, rather than try to reach consensus here, we might want to put together a survey that we can send to all of our members. That way, we can be sure that all members get to participate in the decision - making. I'm sure the zone leadership has ways of doing such a thing, but if not, I'm happy to assist with the creation of such a survey.

We could include an introductory item that summarizes the initiative, and then have a relatively simple one or two items requesting feedback.
Maybe something along the lines of:

Do you support the name change (yes/no)
Then, if they say "yes"....
Which of these names do you prefer? (maybe have them put their top 3 in rank order?)... or we could force a single choice to see those results. There are several options, of course.

I had suggested "Southeast Zone." Ed, is that too close to the Southeastern LMSC name for it to pass without changing the LMSC name? There is no way I would advocate for changing an LMSC name, so if it is too close, I withdraw my suggestion!

I agree with Ed that forcing a change to an LMSC name is not a good option. If we do a survey or take any other suggestions, I don't think that option should even be considered.

In addition, the USMS board already voted there WILL be a name change, so asking if it's supported is a mute point as far as the vote goes. (I would, however, be curious how many people support the name change, and how many want it to stay the same.)

It will be hard to come up with a geographical name for our zone that doesn't conflict with the existing LMSC's names-- that is, if you keep in mind that Tennessee isn't on the Gulf, Atlantic, "Coast" or beachfront! That (and the fact that hurricanes aren't exactly a positive thing) is why I like the name "Sunshine Zone." It's positive and cheery; and, it can (technically speaking) apply to every state in our zone. After all, the sun shines in all of them at one time or another!

I suggest that the name be kept to one or two words, to remain consistent with all of the other zone names (listed below). And no special characters (such as ampersands).

I just did a Patent & Trademark Search. The term "Sunbelt Conference" was not in the results (neither was "Sunbelt Zone"). There were a lot of others listed that include the word "Sunbelt," including Sunbelt Staffing, Sunbelt Federal Credit Union, Sunbelt Cup, Sunbelt Radiators Inc, Sunbelt Graphics LLC, Sunbelt Organic, Sunbelt Bakery, etc. So I can't imagine that there would be any issue with "Sunbelt Zone."

Anna LeaI expect most of our members don’t know (or care) what a USMS zone is. As for name confusion, I don’t see any more confusion between South East Zone and Southeastern LMSC then we have with Northwest Zone and Inland Northwest and Pacific Northwest LMSCs. Also, the South East Zone would be somewhat consistent with the other southern USMS zones (South Central and Southwest).

As long as the name we choose isn’t identical to an existing LMSC, I think our members are smart enough to figure it out.

To all the LMSC Leaders in the Dixie Zone
UPDATE
“Move to Call the Question”























We’ve had a lot of great discussion and several names seem to be leading the pack. As we say in the House of Delegates – “It’s Time to Call the Question”.

For those that have not been to convention – that signals and end to the discussion and we move on to the next stage – voting.
(I know Rob – Mr. Parliamentarian, I probably skipped a few steps in the name of expedience).
It has been suggested that I send out a survey to all our members. Given that there are currently 7,124 members of the zone and only one of me; I’m going to pass on that idea.

Instead; since we have seven (7) LMSC’s with seven LMSC boards and approximately 77 board members who have been following (hopefully) this discussion; I’m going to throw the ball to them and let them speak for their members.

I would like each LMSC Chair to poll their board and any members they would like to include and send me a list of their first, second, and third choices (or just first if there is an overwhelming consensus amongst your board). We’ll assign points to each position (First = 3, Second = 2, and Third = 1) and the name with the most point wins.

Today is the 24th. How about we set, Monday, June 29th, Midnight as our deadline to get back to me?
This will give us enough time on the back end to work through any ties, questions, etc. and get Peter his answer before the next USMS board meeting.





Here are the names that have gotten the most discussion to-date:

Southern Zone (Southern – Currently the LMSC name for LA & MS)
Southeastern Zone (Southeastern – Currently the LMSC name for
Alabama, Tennessee, and the Florida Panhandle)

Feel kind of late to the party, but prompted by an e-mail. So quick note.

Local LSC for USA is Southeastern. Zone (of 4) is Southern Zone. Section is ESSZ - Eastern Section of the Southern Zone.

Does "East Southern Zone" sound too weird? Protects the LSC's name, is geographically appropriate.

As for whatever body of water, meh. I live in TN, and don't really care. Of course, I am a fan of ACC (as in Atlantic Coast Conference) schools, and the ACC contains Louisville and Notre Dame......not really exactly schools anywhere near the Atlantic Coast!

After reading all the threads, I would like to suggest the Dixie Zone name be changed to: Southeast Quadrant Zone.
Appreciate all of you who have jumped in the water to discuss and arrive at a solution in a reasonably short time frame.
